It’s a weird turn of events when Bruce Willis winds up as the guy who could teach all the other guys how to dress. Not that he was ever slovenly or anything. Just that his style, up until now, has always been fairly basic and workman-like. We don’t know if it’s the wife, a new stylist, or a late middle-age realization that he needs to step it up, but the man’s on a style roll and we’re loving it.
Emma Hemming and Bruce Willis attend the ‘Red 2’ European Premiere in London. Emma Hemming is wearing a Roland Mouret dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps and Bruce Willis is wearing a Dior Homme suit.
HIM: Don’t kiss on the red carpet, Bruce. That’s weird. It’s not your wedding. This concludes our criticism because once again, he Willis’d it the fuck UP for this premiere, bringing true masculine, mature style to the red carpet. This look doesn’t thrill us as much as the very unexpected summer white suit he wore last time. We’re almost never fans of a dark tie/shirt/suit combo like this; especially when the shirt and suit are almost the same color. However, we do like the pop of blue in the tie and hankie. The latter touch really takes it to a dapper level. And we are once again weeping in gratitude over his properly hemmed pants.
Okay, maybe we exaggerated that last part, but proper fit and tailoring is important, kittens. Personally, that’s more of a break than we prefer, but it’s more than appropriate. We wouldn’t want to see him try the high-hem skinny pant, after all. Score: 9/10.
HER: We love the color of that dress on her. We’re a bit surprised they’re not more coordinated as a couple. Not that we think they should be, but they strike us as the type. Anyway, trust Roland Mouret to design a lace dress we actually love. Looking at it objectively, we’re surprised we’re not calling for a little editing, because that’s a dress with a lot of design elements to it; the sleeve and shoulder treatment, the pleat and buttons on the back of the skirt, the visible zipper, the faux pockets. But somehow it never seems to feel overworked or overwhelmed. Everything is perfectly placed and proportionate. The silly putty shoes make us sad. Score: 9/10.
Combined Score: 9/10. If she’d worn a better shoe and he’d worn a lighter shirt, we might have been looking at a perfect score.
